The kids are alt-right: Your guide to the new crop of white nationalists

The DSA, the largest socialist group in the nation, shared the fundraiser on its Facebook page following the violent clash between white nationalist protesters and "anti-fascist" counter-protesters in Charlottesville on Saturday.

Officials in Charlottesville in the U.S. state of Virginia have declared a state of emergency ahead of a large march by white nationalists.

"We need to make certain that this is the kind of thing that we don't tolerate or abide by, and I think most people, most Americans who are watching what is taking place in Charlottesville today, are probably appalled by what is taking place there today, just as they are concerned about what is taking place in North Korea", said Blackburn. The protests started out peacefully but as the day went on, fights broke out between the white supremacists and counterprotesters, including Black Lives Matter activists, faith leaders and the anarchist group Antifa.

A 32-year-old woman was killed and about two dozen other people were injured.

Witnesses said it looked like the driver meant to mow down people.

"It's been going on for a long time in our country", President Trump said of the hatred and bigotry in Charlottesville.

North: Media to Partly Blame for Escalating US-N. Korea Tension
But if North Korea escalates, the USA must be prepared to escalate to massive disarming strikes, including use of nuclear weapons. The case of American student Otto Warmbier, who died following his release from North Korea, was included in those talks.

This extraordinarily neutral language spreads blame for division and unrest to all sides.

David Duke, a former "grand wizard" of the Ku Klux Klan white power group, also called the event "a turning point". Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency.

"The visibility of racists really disturbs me, and the openness of the hate is a problem", Mark Goble said.

Unlike President Donald Trump, who refused to pin responsibility of the violent exchanges between white nationalist groups and counter-protesters, Hillary blatantly blamed white supremacy for the spread of hatred in America.

Then, at 1:19 p.m.in New Jersey, Trump took a break from his working vacation at his private golf club to tweet: "We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for".

Very soon after a shooting at an Orlando nightclub in June 2016, Trump tweeted that he was "right on radical Islamic terrorism".

The reclusive state raised the stakes further with a detailed plan to send a salvo of missiles towards the U.S. territory of Guam. Falling crude prices made oil and gas stocks a weight too, dropping 1 percent with Tullow Oil PLC leading the decline.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for what he termed a "pro-white" rally to protest the city of Charlottesville's decision to remove the confederate statue from a downtown park.

"We have to respect each other", Trump said. Lets come together as one!

Some observers also argue that Mr Trump's election to the White House re-energised the far right across the US.

"Some of us ran after the auto to take a photo and then followed it, ran down the road, alerting the police to chase it", he told CNN.

For many Americans, they are outdated symbols of racism and slavery, and have been mobilizing to have them taken down from public places.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement obtained by CBS News' Paula Reid that he is "in contact" with Justice Department officials on the scene, and DOJ stands by the president in condemning violence, and any hate and intolerance.

Merkel's main challenger, SPD leader and former European Parliament spokesman Martin Schulz, has led what many commentators call a plodding campaign.

They have also prompted a tweet from the First Lady, Melania Trump, saying violence does not solve anything.
